1970 Aston Martin DB6 MKII (RHD)
- Beautiful Burnt Almond with Natural Connolly
- Comprehensive refurbishment programme costing in excess of £55,000
- Accompanied by large history file including owners hand book and original build sheet specification
The final production series for the DB6 being the “Mk Il” was the swan song of the DB variants produced by Newport Pagnell. The specification shared many parts with the DBS such as the wheels and tyres, hubs and seats so as to help to minimise costs, the wider tyres are accommodated by slight flares over the wheel arches. The DB6 differed from its predecessors in having a longer wheelbase which, at 8′ 5¾”, was 3¾” longer than that of the DB5. This meant more room for rear passengers, which made the DB6 more of a family man’s car and helped it sell better than the earlier models in the series. The bodywork was distinctive, with a slightly higher roofline than the DB4 and DB5, and featured an aerodynamically efficient abbreviated ‘Kamm’ tail.
Our matching numbered DB6 Mk II commenced manufacture on the 2nd January 1970 and was commissioned to be built in Burnt Almond with Natural Connolly hide (VM 846) with Sand carpeting bound in Natural hide, just as the car is presented today. Supplied new on the 21st February 1970 to Firth Cleveland Ltd of London SW1 issued with the new registration number CYW 6H, to which it is still registered today.
